    • CRP 3.4 Roots, Tubers and Bananas for FoodSecurity and Income Goal: Sustainable productivity increases for global food security by exploiting untapped potential of roots, tubers, and bananas (RTB) to: • Improve nutrition and food security • Increase income generation • Foster improved livelihoods for women, youth, children & other vulnerable groups International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBUntapped potential:• RTBs are grown by 500+ million farmers• Major staples (among 10 most consumed crops)• Excellent sources of energy and some key nutrients• Locally produced and traded; complement cereals in robust and diverse world food system• Often the backbone of food & income security• Frequently neglected by policy makers and R&D agencies International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBExpected impacts:120 million direct and indirect beneficiaries in the next fiveyears among small-scale RTB farmers, families, &communities in some of the poorest regions of Asia, Africa,Pacific, Latin America, & Caribbean International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBThe Crops:• Banana and plantain• Cassava• Potato• Sweetpotato• Yam• “Minor” roots and tubers – Tropical (e.g. cocoyam) – Andean roots and tubers International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBPartners:• CIP (lead)• IITA• CIAT• Bioversity International• Other research-for-development stakeholders International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBWhy a CRP for RTB?• RTBs have similar breeding systems for trait improvement and some critical traits in common• RTBs are clonally propagated leading to similarities in seed multiplication systems• RTBs often play a similar role in food systems as starchy and perishable non-cereal crops International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBWhy a CRP for RTB?• CRP RTB will create economies of scale and scope as scientists involved in the conservation and use of RTB: – explore common research questions, – share labs – develop common tools and methods – coordinate work at common sites, for example, by supporting seed systems with two or more RTB crops – build capacity together International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBThemes:1. Conserving and accessing genetic resources2. Accelerating the development and selection of varieties with higher, more stable yield and added value3. Managing priority pests and diseases4. Making available low cost, high quality planting material for farmers International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBThemes:5. Developing tools for more productive, ecologically robust cropping systems6. Promoting postharvest technologies, value chains, and market opportunities7. Enhancing impact through partnerships International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org

    • CRP 3.4 RTBFig. 1 Organization International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBSteering Committee (SC):• provide strategic oversight of the overall performance• approve the strategic and annual plans and budget allocations• oversee annual performance of the PD• arbitrate disputes as the last instance before these are brought to the Consortium Board.• Composition: DGs of the four CGIAR founding partners of the CRP, a representative of the Lead Center Board (LCB), possibly two independent members, and the PD as an ex‐officio member. The DG of the lead center will chair the SC. International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBManagement Committee (MC):• The MC will be the key strategic and executive entity and will be responsible for the establishment, execution, and monitoring of the full CRP‐RTB research portfolio, including the development of strategy, work plans and business plans, and annual budgets.• Composition: DDGs-Research of Bioversity, CIP, CIAT and IITA, as well as the Program Director. A DDG-R may delegate their representation to „ another high‐level research officer‟ of their Center. The Program Director (PD) will chair the MC International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org

    • CRP 3.4 RTBTheme Leaders:• Leadership of the seven themes will be distributed among the four centers. Theme leaders will be elected according to a set of criteria agreed by the MC and approved by the SC. The MC will ensure an equitable distribution of roles among the four centers based on competencies and the level of investment in a particular theme.• IITA will lead one or more themes. The DG or DDG‐R4D will propose one candidate for any theme for which we believe we should play a theme leader role. International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
    • CRP 3.4 RTBTheme leaders, reporting to the MC, will:• Identify and promote cross‐cutting synergistic research activities for their theme.• Ensure integration across themes.• Facilitate preparation of annual or medium‐term research plans, budgets, and annual reports for their theme in coordination with focal points for the theme in the other centers and the PMU.• Contribute to midterm and final evaluations at three and six years.• Respond to other requests for support related to the appropriate functioning of the CRP from the PD International Institute of Tropical Agriculture – Institut international d‟agriculture tropicale – www.iita.org
